The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Squats - Below parallel

    225 x 6, 245 x 3, 265 x 3, 285 x 3 - PERFECT FORM Up weight next week.

    SLDL - Real quick..not much time

    135 x 6(pffttt...), 185 x 6(pfffttt....) - Teacher was grimacing at me since this wasn't what I should be doing. ******* teachers don't know ****.

    10 pullups

    Time up. Dumb workout. I am going to get a note from a personal trainer saying I need to do a certain workout, not one the school assigns us, which is dumb. Tomorrow are pushup, situp and pullup maxes.


    Diet

    Fairly good...had some extra food to re-energize myself from the tennis. Probably in a calorie deficit of 500-1000 calories.

    going fairly well. No cardio today though, pouring outside and I'm tired.

    Hopefully I can fit in a quick nap before tennis meeting. I'm going to league for doubles. Hopefully my partner and I will go pretty far. Last chance for me, considering I'm a Senior.

    4 hours tennis.

    one 12" turkey sub:
    turkey breast
    wheat bread
    lettuce
    light mayo

    7 cookies tuttut

    in 2 hours will have 2 scoops whey + water
    in 4 hours will have 2 scoops whey + water

    Will end up with about 1500-2000 calories. Burned 2600 calories. So my caloric deficit will be 600-1100. Tomorrow, eat correctly! tuttut

    4 hours total tennis. 2 was playing hardcore tournament. Lost both matches in doubles.

    3-6, 6-0, 2-6
    2-6, 2-6

    ...Oh well, now maybe my tendonitis will go away and now I can start lifting hard again!

    diet -

    went ok, ate some more things to get my carbs up for the match. Was also away from my regular schedule for 12 hours, in the tourny. Missed chicken, ate 1 1/2 bagels, ate a ice cream thing, had some chex mix, some cookies...everything else spot on. Probably in a caloric deficit of 500 or so.

    Training

    Warmup:
    Dips x 15, 10

    Chest:
    BB Bench - 205 x 3, 205 x 2 + 1 ass., 205 x 1 + 2 ass. (Stay at 205 next week)
    DB Bench - 70 x 6, 75 x 6, 80 x 4(!) Hell yeah...80 is our highest db..gotta ask for higher ones soon

    Triceps:
    Tricep Extensions - 80 x 6, 70 x 6, 60 x 6
    -ss-
    Skullcrushers - 65 x 6, 65 x 6, 55 x 6 - Went up on weight.

    Traps:
    BB Shrugs - 225 x 30 (Go for 295 x 10 or so next week)


    Diet

    Going good, stopped taking H-Cut...I'm too used to it, so it doesn't do much. For lunch, had a taco salad instead of tuna. It had beef, chicken, beans, lettuce, olives, cheese, taco shell. Damn good, I'll eat that everyday plus some tuna once I start bulking. Had an apple and a strip of beef jerky. Not raising my cals very much. Other then that, perfect. Still working on that perfect post-workout shake.

    Doing a new form of cardio now since tennis is over(started today). Everyday at 1:30 I will be doing:

    Stationary Bicycling - Burn 300 calories
    Sprinting in the gym(~140 ft. long)

    Jog down and back 3/4 speed
    Touch 4 lines, facing one direction
    Shuffle down and back
    Hop on right leg down, left leg back
    Lunge down and jog back
    Do 4 lines, regular
    Sprint down and back

    Did the sprinting right after I bicycled, so I was hella tired. No clue how many calories I burned altogether. I did cardio from about 1:40 - 2:15 or so. So 300 from biking + the sprinting.

    Just ran today...lifting tomorrow...but I figured out what I'm gonna do for post-workout drink and mrp shizat!

    50% Maltodextrin
    25% CFM Whey Isolate - 93% pure protein
    25% hydrolyzed whey 520 - 74% pure protein

    PRICE $5.97 per pound
    (3 28g scoops per drink mix)

    5 lbs.

    +

    5 lbs. extra maltodextrin(add one 28g scoop per drink mix)


    3, 28g scoops of the mix + 1, 28g scoop of malto will make: 70g carbs(maltodextrin)/35g protein(19.5 cfm, 15.5 hydro 520)

    The mix will last around 27 days and the extra malto will last 81 days.

    Also buy a 10 lb. bag of Whey Protein Concentrate.

    Take 2 scoops per day as a MRP. 10 lb. bag will last 70-80 days.

    Diet

    Going well, I am eating tuna much quicker now and I should be ordering my new protein soon, as I am about to run out. I am getting quite hungry as of late though, so I was thinking about going back on the H-Cut.

    Cardio -
    Burned 100 calories on bike. Someone needed it for PE make-up, so had to get off. Then did the regular sprint routine and then did 1/3 mile sprint.

    12.166% bodyfat. Weight probably around 176 or so.

    Diet will continue going good this week. Gotta try and stick to it on the weekends better! Cardio is still gonna be 5 days a week and on Tuesdays and Thursdays it will be 2 times per day, making for 1 1/2 hours of running/walking.

    Been lacking..consisting of protein bars lately, but I ran out, so I should be back to normal soon. Took almonds out of my diet, cause I stopped doing 2-4 hours of cardio per day, since tennis is over and it's always raining. Still trying to do 3-5 days of cardio per week.
